ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Grammy-winning soprano Renee Fleming will perform with Rochester’s Eastman Philharmonia at Lincoln Center’s Allice Tully Hall this fall.

The Eastman School of Music announced Tuesday that the ensemble and Fleming, a Rochester-area native, will perform Nov. 14 at the Manhattan venue.

The performance will include a new composition written exclusively for Fleming and the Philharmonia by Kevin Puts, an Eastman School alumnus and winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for music.

The world premiere of Puts’ new work will be part of the Eastman Presents concert series on Nov. 12 in Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theatre in Rochester.

In September, Fleming was appointed distinguished visiting artist at the Eastman School, part of the University of Rochester. Fleming received a master of music degree at Eastman.
